Babouche

No.223

A cheerful yellow

Babouche takes its exotic name from the distinctive colour of the leather slippers worn by men in Morocco. It has a cheerful brightness that will intensify when used in large areas, but it is always dignified and never garish. Babouche can be paired with Railings for a very modern but sumptuous effect. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: House White

Babouche is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 27.

Product Information 
ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright without being brash Used the gloss on a wooden interior kitchen door. Adds an injection of colour into an otherwise functional room. Side note: it compliments oak very well but causes debates with colourblind husband - he says it is orange!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's wonderful stuff! We bought Babouche estate emulsion to paint throughout our main living room. We gulped at the cost, but it's worth it. Beautiful colour, excellent coverage and gorgeous finish. We are delighted with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled! My lounge looks fantastic. Every time we have used F & B paint the result has been terrific! Real quality - you certainly get what you pay for. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour! I wanted a blast of colour in my small utility room and chose babouche for the walls, ammonite for the ceiling and downpipe for the woodwork. Babouche is a rich yolky yellow that I love. Ammonite is soft gauzy grey and makes a nice change from white. Both walls and ceiling are modern emulsion which I’m starting to love more than the estate emulsion. I used modern eggshell for the first time on the wood work and the application and coverage in babouche and downpipe was amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Babouche Estate Emulsion No223. This paint is a pleasure to work with. It’s easy to apply, no odour, fast drying, exceptional coverage and it comes in a beautifully designed paint tin with an embossed lid. After you have finished painting, the paint washes out of the brush and rollers with ease. I’m really pleased with the colour and can’t recommend this paint enough! Absolutely Brilliant. Proper chuffed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shade Babouche gives a great splash of colour (but not garish, which worried me) to my otherwise monochrome scheme in both my kitchen/diner and front porch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bedroom makeover I chose babouche with some trepidation but decided to be brace an go for it. I wasn't looking for a bright sunshiney yellow - more verging on a mustard but with a wow factor. The depth of colour is beautiful- very classy (I think anyway) - it's cheerful during the day but also evokes a warm and inviting atmosphere to the bedroom in the evening. My bedroom is now my favourite room in the house!
